I try to take care of myself now is the result of many years of research that monitors the fight against depression and seeks possible ways of visual and textual representation of different mental states. The project was presented in the form of a book. Visually contrasting narratives speculate about the individuation processes and the experienced catharsis. It was realized within the project Organ Vida Publishing and designed by Dario Devic.
